Common Criteria Certification of Trusted Extensions against LSPP is now "PENDING" - Cool!

Sun and CGI completed evaluation activities for Solaris Trusted Extensions on Thursday, 30 May 2008 and submitted an Evaluation Technical Report (ETR) to the Communications Security Establishment of Canada (CSE) for CC Certification. CSE has in turn issued a letter to Sun indicating receipt of our submission and an estimate of when we can expect a decision on our certificate.

Details have been updated on our certfication status web page. CSE's confirmation letter can be obtained by clicking on the words 'PENDING' in the table.

Hearty congratulations to our certification team! :-)

Advance notification of Security Updates for Java SE

On March 4, 2008, Sun will release the following security updates:
  • JDK and JRE 6 Update 5
  • JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 15
  • SDK and JRE 1.4.2_17
  • SDK and JRE 1.3.1_22
The following Sun Alerts corresponding to these updates will be released following the availability of these updates.
As we had announced in September 2007, this is the first set of synchronized releases for Java SE. We need to note though that prior to our announcement last year, we had already fixed a few vulnerabilities in certain release families. These issues will be addressed in a synchronized fashion for all remaining release families through our synchronized security updates and will be noted accordingly in our Sun Alerts.

Advance Notification of Security Updates for Java SE

Sun recently announced two new security response enhancements for Java SE. They include our plans for the synchronized release of Java SE security fixes, and advance customer notification of security updates. These new features are designed to complement Sun's existing Sun Alert notifications, as well as the built-in Java Auto Update tool for Microsoft Windows users. Details are available here.

The following is our first advance notification of security updates for Java SE.

On the week of October 1, 2007, Sun will be releasing security updates with JDK and JRE 6 Update 3, JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 13, and SDK and JRE 1.4.2_16. This will be followed by the release of SDK and JRE 1.3.1_21 on the second week of October 2007.

This is Sun's first step towards the simultaneous release of security fixes across all supported Java SE release families. Sun expects to fully synchronize the release of security fixes across all supported releases, including J2SE 1.3.1 in 2008. Note that J2SE 1.3.1 has completed the Sun "End of Life" (EOL) process and is only supported for the Solaris Operating Environment and customers on Sun's Vintage Support Offering.
